A dip in the pool is refreshing on a hot summer day, but there’s a difference between refreshingly cool and ice cold water. The Hayward HP50TA 50000 is a high-end above ground pool heater that will warm your pool’s water to 80 degrees in just a few days.
With a 50,000 BTU heat output, this heater packs some serious power and can be used with pools up to 13,000 gallons. The question is: Is this heater worth its high price tag? In short – Yes. Here’s why:
Hayward HP50TA Standout Features
- Compact: The Hayward HP50TA 50000 features a compact design and is light in weight.
- Easy Assembly: Thanks to its compact design, this heater is easy to install and just as easy to service.
- Durability: This model features an Ultra Gold coated evaporator coil fin, which is resistant to corrosion.
- LED Controls: A digital LED control panel displays the digital temperature, allows for frost control and features a temperature lockout.
- Quiet: A profiled fan blade allows for improved airflow and a quiet operation.
- Titanium Heat Exchanger
The Hayward HP50TA is designed for pools up to 13,000 gallons. Unlike other heaters, this model has a compact design and only weighs 120 pounds. Its small size makes it easy to move through gates and store away if necessary.
Part of what makes this heater stand out in the crowd is its titanium heat exchanger. It’s highly resistant to chemical products and ensures that the heater operates quietly. The Ultra Gold coated evaporator coil is resistant to corrosion and can withstand coastal environments. The exterior of the heater is constructed with polypropylene, which means your heater will last for several seasons without needing replacement or repair.
Another great thing about this heater is the fact that it’s energy efficient. Its heat pumps are controlled by the unit’s LED control panel, which also displays the current temperature digitally. Having precise control over the temperature allows you to maintain the ideal water temperature at all times. This unit features a 50,000 BTU heat output and 240V.
The only real drawback with the Hayward HP50TA heater is its price. While it does come with a hefty price tag, this heater is one of the best on the market. It’s not uncommon for low cost heaters to need replacement after just one season. This model, on the other hand, will last you several years.
Although the manufacturer of the heater markets this unit as lightweight and compact, many customers felt that the heater was heavy and bulky. Although this may be a concern when first installing the heater, it should not be an issue once the unit is in place.
Despite its high price, the Hayward HP50TA is one of the best above ground pool heaters you can buy. Its LED control panel allows you to maintain the perfect temperature at all times, while its durable design ensures that your heater lasts several years. Between its quiet operation, compact design and high heat output, the Hayward HP50TA 50000 Titanium Pool Heater is a great choice for any pool owner.
